Emmanuel Macron spoke on the evening of Thursday, March 25, at the end of a working session of the European Council by videoconference. For Jean-Dominique Giuliani, President of the Robert Schuman Foundation, the Head of State has lucidly analyzed the weaknesses of the European Union in the management of vaccines.
In France, as in other European countries, the vaccination campaign against Covid-19 is disrupted by delivery delays or an insufficient supply of doses. Emmanuel Macron returned to this thorny subject in the evening of Thursday March 25, during his speech made on the steps of the Élysée (Paris). “He set the record straight on what Europe was doing,” said Jean-Dominique Giuliani, president of the Robert Schuman Foundation and guest of Franceinfo 11pm on Thursday evening. “Emmanuel Macron recognized a slowness, which is indisputable, but he attributed it above all, and rightly, to the aversion of Europeans to risk.”
For the specialist in European issues, it is “this lack of risk appetite, this exaggerated precautionary principle which must be cured.” Because, otherwise, the way out of the crisis promises to be long and laborious. “If we don’t, we’re going to be confined for years to come,” warns Jean-Dominique Giuliani.
